Kayaking in Bor Thor + Tha Pom Mangrove River

1,100 ฿1,400 ฿



  • AVAILABILITY: Daily, all year round
  • MODE OF TRANSPORT: Covered pick up truck
  • APPROXIMATE TIMING: 08.30 – 16.30
  • ITINERARY: This tour takes you to one of the most interesting areas of Krabi, wonderfully scenic, and rich in history and culture. Travel overland (40 – 50 mins) to the pier at Bor Tor and then transfer to your kayak (2 / 3 seater).

    You will set off, along the backwaters, passing local fishermen, to reach the vast cavern of Pee Hua Toh, which has provided shelter to humans for thousands of years (and has cave paintings to prove it). Take pictures at the magnificent lookout point near the top of the cave. Continue paddling to Tham Lod, a “secret passage” through a rock tunnel dotted with stalactites, before returning to the pier for lunch. Total kayaking time, around 1.5 hours (not including stops).

    After lunch, which will consist of Thai food served family style, stop off for a refreshing swim in the cool water of Tha Pom Klong Song Nam, an amazingly clear, multi-hued river fed by both salt and fresh water springs, which give it its Thai name (“klong song nam” means “two water river”). There is a short nature trail through the mangrove to reach the swimming spot. Note, this is NOT the overcrowded “Phu Tara” swimming hole offered by most kayaking operators, but one of Krabi’s hidden gems (link to Trip Advisor reviews).

    Note that although it is easier if all passengers on the kayak paddle, only one person actually needs to paddle, so children or less fit people can sit as passengers with an able adult.

    Expected group size: 6 – 14 pax, depending on the day and time of year.

    Important: Kayaks are available as 2 or 3 seaters.
